DC Comics superhero drama ‘Titans’ may be on the way

Superheroes on television are all the craze nowadays. Not that we’re complaining. The more superheroes the better.

With five DC Comics adaptations set to be on network television this year — including Arrow, The Flash and Gotham — Warner Bros. and DC show no signs of slowing down.

And Teen Titan and Nightwing fans should get excited with this new bit of news.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new DC superhero drama called Titans is nearing a pilot order over at TNT. The show will follow a group of superheroes-to-be, including Dick Grayson as he leaves behind his Robin identity to become Nightwing.

Based on characters from DC Comics, Titans revolves around a group of young superheroes-to-be who are recruited from every corner of the DC universe. The action-themed drama centers on Dick Grayson, who emerges from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new superheroes including Starfire, Raven and more. The show is described as a dramatic adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book titles ever.

I’ve been waiting for Nightwing to appear on my television. While I assumed he’d eventually find his way onto Arrow, I’ll take him anyway I can.

Are you excited for another potential DC show? What DC character would you next like to see adapted to the small screen?
